Surviving a layoff...

Hi Friends,

I recently survived being laid off after 17+ years of employment so I'm restructuring my priorities, gaining knowledge, raising my head high and standing tall.

It's coming down to the end of my unemployment compensation with no real leads in employment.  I know I'm an entrepreneur at heart so I think this may be my end game if a job doesn't come into the picture that my knowledge and skills compliment. I'm smart, intelligent, a fast learner and a leader.

Believing in oneself and staying positive has always been my top personal characteristics.  I know I will get through this and I know it was meant to be.

I know from the bottom of my heart it was the best decision for me and my family. I've taken this time to increase my knowledge of Digital Marketing, Branding, Computer Skills and Affiliate Marketing.  I've also learned all about Launches, Lead Magnets, Tripwires and Core Offers.

I know what I did wrong in my place of employment as well as what they did wrong.  I also know what I did wrong when I self-published years ago. (Wish I knew then what I know now, bummer)
I know that this world has so much to offer and I have to start today.  I also know that I will never know everything. That I will never be perfect and that there is no time like the present to live dreams that were meant to be lived.

I've experienced the good, the bad and the ugly and still walk tall. My self confidence and self esteem has not been broken by this method of survival.  No one will defeat me nor will I give them the power to take my positive attitude away from me.  It's always been and always be a part of me.

I believe in myself even if noone else will.  I am my own biggest cheerleader. I will not relinquish the power of my happiness to anyone. I hold it all within myself.  I'm a master at gluing any parts that have been broken and making them strong enough to withstand any storm.  Faith is my biggest Adhesive and I'm proud to be on a new path.  In fact I'm excited for my new adventures and long for the variety that my new life will endure.

Who's with me?  Who wishes to step out and live a life they always dreamed?  You are not alone. You will never be alone.  I know there are others out there wanting and dreaming of more, getting stuck with the roadblocks along the way, well not this girl.  This girl is going to make a difference.  I'm going to help others like me.  Let them know they are not alone and they too can survive a layoff.

With hugs and kisses,
Your friend,
Kimber Shook
